bad service at pickup
Pros: The car was good and the dropoff process was ok
Cons: The pickup attendant was terrible. We tried to rent the car using the credit card insurance and she insisted that it's not possible. I wasted a lot of time to convince her to process the rental without the store's insurance to allow me to get the credit card insurance.

Cons: Paid almost triple the price than what was advertised on Kayak. Had horrible customer service when I questioned the additional charges. Also had to wait over 40 minutes to pick up the car which caused me to miss the beginning part of the wedding I attended. Will never rent from here again or recommend anyone to do so.

Cons: I was switched from economy to full size, no extra charge but more gas money. I did not notice that tank was not full until I had driven a way. I offered to document to the company that I had put in 6 gallons to drive 115 miles, but they turned down my request for reimbursement of 16$, on the grounds of the "upgrade".

Extremely Long Wait in Budget Office at JFK
Pros: Nothing
Cons: We waited in line for over 45 minutes to pick up a pre-reserved car and eventually left to rent a car in less than 5 minutes next door at Alamo. When we walked in there were two clerks each assisting a customer and two people in line in front of us.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: It took over an hour to actually get the rental car from JFK. The staff were incredibly slow and very poorly trained (had to ask each other how to select a particular car type, see which cars are available, etc.). It was as if someone just took them of the street and put them behind the counter. Even with over 2 dozen people waiting in line and loudly complainingermarsr@comcast.net and skiing to speak with the manager, she casually walked around and did nothing. She did not assist her staff nor address the customers.

Wasn't Allowed to Hire the Car
Cons: I made a deposit on Kayak with my visa debit card, and was not informed that I wouldn't be able to use the same debit card to hire the car. Wasn't allowed to hire the car, lost my $50 deposit and missed the wedding I came to go to. Devestated. Very unlikely to use Kayak again.

Very good and easy rental from JFK
Pros: Booked earlier so the pick up was quick and easy. After 10 min I was off on the road to go home. Returned the 2nd day at Boston. I parked my car as they directed and immediately got my receipt when I stepped out of my car. So quick.
Cons: Upgraded to Jeep Patriot as they ran out of medium sedan, good but I don't like Jeep Patriot that much though.

Pros: The price. ANd the drop off went quickly. That's it. Everything elses about the experience I would not want to repeat.
Cons: The car reeked of cigarettes which I a. extremely sensitive too. It snowed un xpectedly and I felt extremely unsafe in the car which felt very unstable driving in those conditions. It took forever to pick up the car, they have only one person working at a time to help people. I guess that's what I get for the good deal I got. I will do my best not to rent from Payless again.

scarebones rental but the price was right
Pros: Well, if you can find the place, it isn't terrible. No one was there when I dropped off the car @ 6 am, and there was no drop box so I had to leave the keys in the car. The car itself was fine and the rental was a really good price, so keep that in mind. But it was a hassle returning the car as the Google maps address was in the airport service road complex, and I had to figure out the public address by asking.
4.0 Mediocre
Dec 4 2015
Pros: I found the staff to be untrained and the policies of Payless somewhat antiquated. I originally indicated I would bring my vehicle back 1 1/2 days into my rental. When I decided to keep the vehicle the full 2 days Payless wanted to charge me a change fee and bill me for another day - even though it would have still been within the original 2 days I paid for. In addition, they charged me for an EZPass and I spent 2 days driving through tolls until a cop stopped me and told me I did not have an EZPass. Lastly, when I wanted to add a second driver noone seemed to know how to add to my policy. Very disappointing experience and I will likely not use them again.

Look Elsewhere
Pros: Good value for the car rented.
Cons: Waited about a hour in the lobby (with one seat for customers) to take delivery of a reserved car. Car was delivered with only 3/4 tank of fuel, but not indicated as such on invoice. Weather was too cold and lobby too full to go back in to correct invoice. I returned car with full tank though, to avoid any addional charges. Will not recommended nor use Payless in the future.

Pros: The car drove nicely, and was reasonably clean....
Cons: The associate told me to go the wrong numbered spot, so I had to return the desk. Then the car had only 3/4ths the gas though I was marked for a full tank, so I had to return to the desk. When I returned it, I was charged for "being late by an hour" (something I've never thought about when returning before a flight). Being hidden in the Hertz station made it hard to find. Pretty poor customer experience, and will be going out of my way not to use Thrifty again in the future.

Successful trip
Pros: Pick up and drop off was one of the easiest things at the airport, we got decent gas mileage too! The seats were pretty comfortable.
Cons: The "cruise control" on the car wasn't normal, the button even said "coast" so it was constantly changing speeds. What's the point of cruise control if it doesn't actually work how it's supposed to . And the pickup on that Nissan sonata is terrible.

Poor experience
Cons: Counter staff is fully aware but unapologetic for their google maps location being off and our walking 45 minutes to an incorrect location. Had to wait 45 minutes for a car with 10 others because "the cars were in the wash". Staff berates us for not taking EZPass or their coverage even though we explained we have coverage through the booking on Kayak.

Waited 2hrs for car!
Pros: The manager lady drove cars like a maniac!
Cons: I waited two hours for my car. It was ridiculous and really screwed up the rest of my trip. And I was told that the insurance I bought through Kayak wasn't accepted. So I had to buy theirs. I also heard other customers being denied all sorts of insurance types. And the location is incorrect on google maps so I had a nice walk around the outskirts of the Airport for an hour as well. It's near the Hertz rental.

Car not available at reservation
Pros: Car was fine. Ran as expected.
Cons: Agent was incredibly rude and confrontational from the moment I got to the desk. We had to wait for an hour for our car after we were checked in. There were at least five other groups waiting as well, who had similar wait times. The desk agent and the other employees were inefficient and the desk agent was literally yelling at all the other employees. It was very uncomfortable for everyone there.

Cons: Took 52 minutes standing in line at LaGuardia Thrifty / Dollar counter. Just 2 of the 5 stations manned and over 100 people in line. Nearly a riot at one point. Cigarette lighter did not power up, UBS port did not power up. So I had to stop to download driving drirections because the navigator could not get power and my moibile was nearly drained too. Overall a very poor experience. Oh almost forget, at LaGuardia 4-5 Hertz, Avis, Budget etc. shuttless pass for every Thrifty shuttle. Always at least 15 minutes wait there.

Worst place ever!!!
Pros: This is by far the worst place I have ever been too. For starters their shuttle never arrived after 40 minutes. I had to get on another shuttle just to get there. Then i get to the counter and the girl was the rudest person i have ever met. Then wouldnt let me pay with my debit card. To top it off I had to go down the street to rent from a competitor. And to really show how terrible this place was there was another person who rented from them and paid in full and he also had to go down the street to rent from the same place I went to because they didnt have a car for him. If I could I would give this place a 0!!!
Cons: Everthing!!!!

Pros: Nothing. I plan on reporting Advantage to the Better Business Bureau.
Cons: I was not able to rent a car. Spent an hour finding the rental online. Was told I had successfully rented a car. Rented a car2go to arrive at the car rental place (25 min). Stood in line for 40 min, and then was told I didn't have car insurance so could not rent a car and there was no way to purchase insurance at that office. Then had to drive back to my neighborhood and fond another car rental location. On top of this the agents told me I would not receive a full refund. I would have to waste another 30-1 hour of my time calling carrentals.com so that they wouldn't charge me $50 for swindling me. Stop working with this company until they fix this. I should have read their yelp reviews because they say it all. This also happened to 2 other people while I was there.

Economy was there every step of the way.
Pros: Highly suggest. A quick walk from Airtran at JFK, cutting time with shuttle. The car was ready and freshly washed. A video of surface scratches was made on the spot and emailed. The personnel were all very helpful and personable, with good advice on direction. And what a deal. Came through in a pinch, too, at the last minute.

You pay for what you get!
Pros: I loved the price.
Cons: The customer service at the rental office was horrible. The man was arguing with me about whether or not my insurance covered me in their car. I ended up paying for the insurance but later found that I am actually covered by my insurance in any car I enter...as I was trying to tell him, but he was arguing with me and I just wanted to leave ASAP and hit the road. Complete attitude problem. His assistant was much nicer and informative. The car was a hyundai automatic with no automatic windows or locks. It was very worrisome whether or not I would leave the car open. The car given was very poor quality. The mile restrictions area little unreasonable as well.

Cons: I changed the one way rental from ending in west palm beach to near Chicago. They charged me an extra $700. Why?

Great service
Pros: The Hertz reps at both pickup and drop off were pleasant and professional. That makes all the difference when choosing where to spend your money!
Cons: A little pricey for a one day rental, but I understand it was almost a holiday weekend.

Pros: I returned car to NYC - did not have new rental there. Questions don't really apply.
Cons: Difficult to find car rental return place. Did not see signs on airport property for rental return. Was very concerned about being late. Finally had to stop and research where location was while I was on airport property.

SHAME on HERTZ!
Pros: Sadly NOTHING of my experience was positive. Please read below to get the FULL STORY. And forgive the occasional all-caps but you'll understand when you read my tale of woe. Thanks
Cons: Do yourself a favor and learn from my oh so TRAGIC experience, and it was the single WORST car rental experience in my LIFE. I took a red-eye into JFK - NYC. Got in at 6:30am. When I made my reservation on Kayak, I mistakenly did not specify my pick up time so it defaulted to noon - my bad. So the night before the flight I called Hertz and changed my pickup time to 6am. The customer service said that it was all taken care of, no problem. When I arrived at the Hertz counter in NY they said my pickup time is 12 noon and they have no car for me. I have to wait until noon. Despite my explanation that their phone representative changed my pickup time they said no can do. What they did offer me, if I didn't want to wait (uh, no, I'd love to wait over 5 hours and spend it with the "it's 6:30am and I don't care about you Hertz staff) , I could PAY MORE and get another car to take now. I once again explained it was their customer service that bungled my time change, but I got a NO CAN DO. Without any options I PAID MORE and got an "upgrade" - from mid-size to full size. I was alone so I didn't need or want a slightly bigger car. Next, the interior of the car was DIRTY. I got black stuff on my hands from the sticky steering wheel. And a spilled drink was dried up on the middle console. So I drove to the checkout kiosk and told the Hertz staff that my car was dirty inside. She literally said in a very rude tone "that's not my job, I've got nothing to do with that". So I made a U turn and went to the check in lane. I told the Hertz staff my car was dirty and the guy said the SAME thing then walked off. I swear there is an end to this so bear with me - it gets even better. So I take out my luggage and go back to the Hertz desk. I told them about the dirty car and the rude employees and they readily gave me another car that I still had to PAY MORE for. Fast forward to check out. I bring the car back and nobody is directing people into the checkout lanes. I go behind the lane with most cars to get in line while others arrive and go right to the front of all the other lanes expecting to check out before those who were waiting in line. There is only ONE checkout person and a mass of cars with unhappy customers waiting and having to figure out who was there first. Finally I get out of there. I call HERTZ to relay my experience and all the customer service offers is a voucher for the next rental. But I'm NEVER renting from Hertz again so that means nothing to me. Also, they won't even refund me the EXTRA I had to pay when the pickup change was "all taken care of, no problem". No problem? ONLY PROBLEMS. Next, I'm told that if I want any charges reduced on my bill, I need to deal with JFK HERTZ directly and discuss with the manager. So I call JFK HERTZ to speak with a manager and am given an answering machine saying that they will call me back within 4 hours. THEY NEVER CALLED BACK. SHAME ON YOU HERTZ and learn from my unfortunate experience.

Terrible customer service
Pros: Car was OK.
Cons: I prepaid for 3 days, and somehow, the staff was convinced that I only paid for 2 days (despite the fact that I showed them my Kayak receipt and credit card charge. After 15 minutes on complaining when picking up the car, I thought it was resolved. When I dropped the car off, same story: I owed another day. Both women helping out were very rude. Rose was the second and basically told me to "work it out with it with Kayak because it wasn't her problem."

Pros: I received a great rate, then the next day I realized that I made the rental at the north end of the city instead of the bottom, and called to change it. The rate tripled. Then the guy on the phone let me use a promo code, which brought it down to a reasonable price, so I was happy. Then when I picked it up, the car went from $51 to $200!!! I was only using the car for 3 hours. RIDICULOUS. Watch your back.

Jay (manager) Enterprise 80th & 2nd is incredible!
Pros: I arrived late (and desperate) an hour after the garage had closed, and Jay opened it back up and got me my car. He gave me a free upgrade and was super friendly. Best service I've ever had from a car rental garage. He chatted with me amicably about my trip and was genuinely interested in what I was saying. When I got back, he remembered me and asked how my trip to Boston was. The car was great as well, clean and no issues. Thanks Jay!! Nicole at the desk was a pleasure too!

Pros: The Enterprise road assistance has a wonderful service!
Cons: I was given a car that had a flat tire. When I asked the customer service for another car, she refused saying that it is nothing wrong with the car and that I should ignore the error message on the board (which indicated that one of the back tire has low pressure). She tried to inflate the tire on Enterprise compound but the error message on the board did not disappear. She told me that once I will start driving the car the message will go away. I asked again for another car and she refused. I took the car drove it home but the message was still there. I called the Enterprise road assistance and they told me if the tire seems ok then I should ignore the error message. I did so but after two hours driving the pressure on the tire was 25 psi. We stopped at a gas station to inflate the tire. At this point the error message disappear. We finally made it to destination and over night the tire was totally deflated. I called again the Enterprise road assistance who sent AAA to change the tire with the spare one. AAA told me that with the spare tire I should not drive at a speed of more than 50mph. I thought that this was unacceptable since I rented the car to drive a lot around on the highway and not a speed of 50 mph. I called again Enterprise road assistance who agreed to change my car with another one. This took a lot of my personal vacation time plus the stress of driving with a flat tire having two small kids in the back. I am really wondering if it would not be cheaper for LGA Enterprise (and of course much better for me) to have given me from the beginning another car as I requested? I am extremely disappointed with LGA Enterprise and how the customer representative handled the situation.
